Re: STICKY: TUTORIAL: Update NOOBS without Re-Installing It (When Your Raspberry Pi 3B+ Will Not Boot!)

First of all, love your post my friend, this is an excellent tutorial! Second of all, I have a question, I only have a Raspberry Pi 3B+, it's my first one ever, my question is, can I go back from the actual os version (Raspbian Buster with NOOBS), to Jessie directly from my raspberry without having...

So perhaps you could make your own .deb package with all the scripts included and spare the users

Perhaps I will be the one to decide what I do with my own tutorial.

To borrow your provocative phrasing, it is you that might wish to "spare the users" of flawed technical advice in the future.

Not sure if you are aware, but feh 3.1.3 is available in Debian Buster repositories. To install, simply run: wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/f/feh/feh_3.1.3-1_armhf.deb sudo apt install ./feh_3.1.3-1_armhf.deb No need to compile anything or pollute your system with dev packages or unman...

Re: OMXplayer - how to choose better streams with m3u8 playback?

The problem I have with streamlink now is to play an encrypted m3u8 link... I've never used streamlink, so I can't give you any advice on that. However, I will say that subscription sites have a strong incentive to make what you're trying to do either very hard or impossible. That's why I used the ...

I was referring to a script I published last year. It's currently on the first page of this room, but here's a direct link. Please post there if you have any questions.

In order to get a succesful compilation of mpv-with mmal hardware acceleration it is necessarary to update the Raspberry Pi firmware before beginning the compilation by using: sudo raspi-config (see caution) Of course you should be aware and warned that there are many cautions from authoritative so...

Re: STICKY: TUTORIAL: Build the #1 Image Viewer – Automatically in 3 Minutes!

Well, I have no options as Filemaker will not run on a Raspberry Pi system. The script that exports the image file is a Filemaker script. I realize "it is what it is" — the other system at your warehouse is not a Raspberry. For good or for bad, that's what you're dealing with. I assume, however, th...

Your code is doing what you intend it to do..... I believe the problem was due to a change I made in my Filemaker script and not in your code. I'm testing that now. I guess I should have made my inquiry more specific in regards to any debugging aids..... Filemaker and its scripts are running on a W...

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

Thanks a lot for your guidance and help. You were right. I missed the step 3 of Appendix 8 entirely. I had not installed the dependency packages first. After installing those dependencies , mpv ran perfectly fine. :) You're welcome! It's cool to know you're running my build on multiple Raspberries.
